There is no question that race is still a big issue in this country. We may think we've come far since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. But in many very important ways, we have not. South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott took to the Senate floor this week to deliver a series of speeches on race in America. The video nearby is one of the most powerful, in which he discusses his personal experiences as a black male interacting with law enforcement.

Watch it. Think about it. This is a conversation the nation needs to have.
